Multi-dimensional inequalities, climate governance and livelihoods in sub-saharan Africa
published in March 2023
Recurring drought and other severe weather events, combined with unstable energy supply in this region, jeopardize socio-economic development and livelihoods. States’ abilities to provide basic services decline as resources become scarce. Simultaneously, resource-constrained countries struggle to access suitable technological solutions.
While the multidimensional nature of inequality has been relatively well documented, this paper expands the concept of multi-dimensionality to interrogate the role of climate change and climate governance in the multi-dimensional inequality framework and its relevance for Sub-Saharan Africa.
